When we acquire something easily we tend to forget it’s value and do not take care of it properly, so it will leave our hand (by breaking it, giving it to someone else, misplacing it or losing it somewhere).
When you get something after hard work fueled by your passion and desire for it, you tend to respect your effort by keeping it safe or giving it its own respect due to the efforts you had put in. By this, something which you got will lasts for a longer time as you respect and take care of that.
Here is some common examples –
- When a boy/girl looks for their partner to be in relationship, they approach the one who they want and when the opposite person accepts it easily, they both cheer the relationship for some time and later they lose interest, end up in breakup.
- A child cries for a toy and gets a new one each time, he/she may be enthusiastic for a few days then shove it in the toy box a few days later but if that toy was earned maybe by meeting a target, doing some chores, practicing delayed gratification ,chances are that the child may value it more and keep it for a longer time
- If you live with your parents, drive their cars, eat free food and so on you may be wreck less or wasteful, but when you start to work, earn your own money live in your own place and pay your own bills you tend to be more prudent
